The Perennial Favourite for Romance

Mexico has long been a favourite destination for many people seeking a romantic beach resort getaway. Generations of lovers have flocked to romantic Mexico getaway places like Cancun, Los Cabos, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco.

There are two popular areas for visitors to Mexico. The most popular of these must be the Yucatan peninsula, which includes the area known as the Riviera Maya or Caribbean Riviera.  The Riviera Maya is known for its majestic, white-sand beaches, warm sunny weather and Mayan ruins. The playgrounds here for a romantic Mexico getaway are the likes of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and islands such as Cozumel.

Cancun is a stunning resort area on the Gulf coast.  The main city area is located on the mainland. There are two main lagoons, the Nichupté and Bojórquez lagoons which the mainland links to a narrow inverted "L" shaped island where the many beachfront hotels are located. The island of Isla Mujeress is located off the coast and is accessible by boat from Puerto Juarez. There are beautiful beaches aplenty to please the sun worshippers.  If you want some privacy, you can have it too, at some of the less crowded beaches.

When the sun goes down, the nightlife kicks in and continues well into the morning. Cancun's nightclubs and discotheques offer all kinds of music and drinks. Those looking for a different kind of celebration can head to party on cruises that offer dinner, drinks and music while sailing along the bay and Laguna Nichupte. Indeed, the excitement never ends in Cancun. Cancun is also the gateway to the Riviera Maya, another popular tourist area.

The scenery at Los Cabos on the Pacific coast is equally breath-taking. You may want to check out the Mayakoba, which is located on the Riviera Maya. It is a pretty resort village about 40-minute drive south of Cancun. In Mayan, the word "mayakoba" means "city on water," and it is fast becoming the Venice of Mexico.

What was once a quiet quaint getaway, has now turned into a major cruise destination and dive spot. Each year, it see more than 2 million visitors. Tourists also come for the island’s noted Carnival celebration and to marvel at the remnants of its Mayan culture.

The second most popular Romantic Mexico getaway area is known as the Mexican Riviera, a beautiful swath of beaches spanning over 2,000 miles of the Pacific coast between Ensenada and Acapulco.
